Laundry day? DIY laundry detergent



As a natural mama, I strive to make sure our house is toxin/chemical free! So here I introduce to you a pretty simple recipe for a homemade laundry detergent!!

What you’ll need:

•3 cups borax

•3 cups washing soda

•2 cups baking soda

1 fels naptha laundry bar (can be found at Walmart, apparently this is also a great stain remover!)

25-30 drops of essential oil of choice

I chose young living lemon and purification! It smells fresh and clean! (Interested in learning more about essential oils and young living. Inquire more information at )


Youll start with adding all your dry ingredients together first. Baking soda, washing soda and borax.

Then you’ll shave your soap bar. This can also be done in a food processor. Mix with your dry ingredients and then add your essential oils and blend it all in a food processor until it’s a fine powder. There you have it. You’ll use two spoonfuls at a time or you can can use your old laundry scooper and fill to line 1.


Things i I may do different next time: well I ended up using a prettier container, but I think next time I’ll use dr bronners Castile soap and pick a beautiful scent like citrus to add next time! Also not pictured: baking soda.

Who has ever tried homemade laundry detergent? What other DIY house cleaning products have you done?

i have done almost everything DIY in our home and as I continue to refill and make more, I’ll be posting to the blog.


Light & love,

Rebel B
